Pro Prospector

Automatically Finds Serious Leads and Delivers Them to Your Recruiters

Stop Chasing Bad Leads

Pro Prospector transitions the need for your franchisee recruiting staff to chase every incoming lead to working almost exclusively with serious leads.

Pro Prospector ensures that over time all leads receive information about your franchise opportunity. The serious ones rise like cream to the top. We’ve got this.

All behavior is tracked for each lead. The more a lead engages, the higher their score and rank. As a lead shows serious interest, we see it, track it and help you act on it. And guess what! A lead can automatically schedule a call with a recruiter any time.

Pro Prospector frees up around 43% of in-house recruiter time now spent chasing “all leads”.

So imagine 150 new leads come in. Your recruiter burns through time trying to find good leads. Pro Prospector automatically finds the 8-10% of leads showing serious interest. Now wouldn’t you rather have your talented recruiter working those serious leads instead of simply trying to find them?

FPS research has shown that franchisors are, on average, only able to make direct contact with about 20%-30% of new leads. Most leads are abandoned within 30-45 days of initial contact. Why? Because the next batch of leads just showed up.

A traditional lead qualification process isn’t producing the results it used to and it’s increasingly expensive to maintain. This emerging generation of franchise investors typically shows little to no desire to engage with a ‘recruiter’ until they’ve had an opportunity to thoroughly research a franchise offer on their own. Blame the internet, but this new buyer is here to stay.
